i am thinking about getting an ibanez, but dont have much experience of them, anyone fancy telling me about the RG350EX.....if anyones tried it, its either that or a JEM555, in normal circumstances i'd go for the JEM as it truly is a beautiful guitar, and a Vai model, but the reviews on here praise the RG350EX over the JEM cheers for any help

the RG350EX is also about £400 (about $760) cheaper than the JEM

i even play the rg 350 ex and it's really nice
if you would like to change the sound over time you should replace the pu's as I did...
i thought it wouldn't make a big difference with the wood of my guitar...
but it makes a difference definitely!
and it's a good trem...only get's out of tuning if you make too deep divebombs but doesn't fall out of tuning too much...
you should buy it

The JEM555 is pretty crap, it's the budget version of the higher end JEMs and the hardware is somewhat poor as is the overall quality.

I wouldn't go for the 350EX either, it has a shoddy trem that will wear out quickly. IMO you should just bank your money for a while and/or look for an Ibanez RG5xx or current production prestige series RG.

hmm...how about EMG's? hmm......i read somewhere that EMGs wont fit into an ibanez though? this true?

oh and is the 350DX any different to the EX? cuz it looks the same and is same price...its just white instead of black....

they won't fit without modification into the RG1570 because it has no pickup rings. I had to round the bottom corners very slightly on the emg's themselves to fit them thru the face.

dremel ftw You have to be careful not to go too deep, but it's only a very slight amount of clearance it needs. If you don't have a steady hand, i don't recommend trying it yourself.
